Hi there,
PUK stands for PIN UNLOCK KEY. You are experiencing this problem because you have entered the wrong PIN for your SIM card 3 times. This automatically activates the prompt for the PUK. You can get the PUK by calling your phone provider.
Good luck.

What is the PUK code


its Personal Unlock KEY..........for phone security......actually before PUK u enter sim pin........if wrong pin is entered 5/10 times your sim is locked permanently and sim can only be used after u enter puk code. Please note that pin code is entered by user.....but PUK code is provided by your network service provider company. PUK is generally mentioned on the sim rapper(cover).........in case u have not kept the rapper and u do not know the PUK code and ur phone is asking for it...then please do not try to enter it as too many attempts to enter wrong PUK will lock ur sim for ever and u will have to get a new sim.....so instead of trying a wrong PUK code its better to contact your network service provider (you can call their service number) and he will give u the PUK code for your sim free of cost.
I Hope this clears all your doubts about PUK.

Hi my sons phone is showing enter PUK code! can you help or do I have to contact his network/supplier? thankyou


PUK code stands for pin unlock code. It comes when you enter wrong code for your pin code three times. It is a security feature of your sim card to avoid unauthorised access.

When you enable pin code on your sim card, your phone automatically asks for pin no. when switched on. If the pin is entered wrongly 3 times. It locks the sim, and asks for PUK code. The PUK code needs to be obtained from your provider. If you enter PUK wrongly 10 times, your sim card will be permanently blocked and you will need to obtain a new sim card. Hence kindly contact your network for the right puk code.

Please note: Entering a wrong PUK code ten times in a row permanently disables the SIM card. Soc85fe00.png please be careful while entering the PUK code

Hi,

If you accidentally enter the wrong PIN code three times in a row, the phone asks for a PUK ( Personal Unblocking Key ).

Also, entering a wrong PUK code ten times in a row disables the SIM card permanently. So, please be careful while entering the PUK code.

Yh need me puk number


What is a PUK code? A PUK code (Pin Unlock Key) is required when you enter an incorrect PIN 3 times. After entering the wrong PIN 3 times, the card will be locked and you will need to get a PUK code from your phone company to unlock it.
What should I do if my phone says Enter PUK Code? How can I get a PUK Code? You can receive your phone's PUK code by calling your phone company Customer Care.. Once your PUK has been received, it will need to be entered into your phone to set a new PIN code. If the wrong PUK code is entered ten times in a row, the SIM card becomes invalid and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display "PUK blocked call operator".

I've tired to set the PIN code for my Nokia 6085 phone but I cannot. I've entered the PUK code but now it says, "Enter new PIN code:" What do I do? I've entered a code I wanted and other ones on my...


HOLD ON!
You may enter wrong PIN three (3) times only. After that your PIN will be blocked! To unblock, you need PUK. You can only enter wrong PUK ten (10) times. (This is as documented) After entering correct PUK, you will be asked for NEW PIN.

So, when it says "PIN blocked. Enter PUK code", you must enter the PUK. If you correctly enter the PUK, it will asked for new PIN, by asking "Enter new PIN code:". Enter anything you want as your PIN. You will be asked to enter it twice (two times).
From what I read from your post, you have done correctly, but you don't want to enter new PIN. There is no way SIM card/phone will use old PIN. The device doesn't know your PIN. So, you have to enter new PIN.

NEED PUK CODE:::


you have entered the pin code wrong 3 times now you are required to enter a puk code to reset the pin code. 

The puk code is sim card spesific it comes with the sim card when you get it or you can get it by calling your phone service provider of the sim card to get the puk code. 


if you have entered the puk code wrong too many times you will make the sim card useless and you will have to contact your phone service provider for a new sim card, it will probably cost.
